I became a mom and I remember the day like it was yesterday. Although the boy is super excited about being "two digits," I'm feeling a bit sad. Of course that's normal for me; I've gotten weepy at every milestone or birthday he's had.
As someone who never wanted kids, I have to say, deciding to become a mom was the best thing I've done so far in life. Our life isn't perfect but I wouldn't trade the last decade for anything in the world! Although I would trade the whiny, teary eyed child that didn't want to go to school this morning because it's "my birthday" for a cup of coffee...LOL!
I thought this year would be a big party since it's a big birthday but the boy said he just wanted family. That worked out great because I really wasn't up to planning or paying for a big party. We all gathered at a local park on Saturday and it was great! The weather was awesome, the park was full of other families, the water was beautiful and everyone had a great time!
So, to my awesome son; I love you and Happy Birthday!!!
